Speeding B.C. bikers hit with hefty fines, lose motorcycles for week

VANCOUVER - Six motorcyclists who were clocked travelling more than 162 kilometres an hour in Squamish, B.C., have been hit with hefty fines and will lose their bikes for a week.

Police say that's more than double the speed limit for the riders who were initially spotted going 140 kilometres an hour.

But RCMP say the pack of riders travelling about three metres apart increased their speed while passing a police officer and were then pulled over.

Mounties say the riders each received a ticket for $483 and that their bikes were impounded for seven days.

Police say getting pulled over may have been the best thing that ever happened to the motorcyclists.
